about half a percent. bob joins me on the floor of the nyse. the market is very undecided about what is happening in washington. what the feds know that perhaps we don't know. >> we are getting smacked around by these two separate events. the fiscal cliff as well as aftermath of what went on with the fed. i think the fed is still very important here. take a look the dow industrials. remember, we started moving down right after we saw mr. bernanke give his press conference. we talked about fiscal cliff having problems, not having the tools to deal with the fiscal cliff. the fed not having it, should we go over that. there we are dealing with the aftermath. remember something folks, september 14 is the high for the s&p this year. you know why that is important in september 13 is the fed meeting. they bought into the fed meeting and sold right after that, sue. and they are doing that again today. we are repeating what happened just a few months ago. i think that's why it is very important. elsewhere, defense stocks. here is a group that's very worried about frustration when mr. bernanke

over the past few days alone. our bob pisani joins me here on the floor of the nyse. what are you hearing from traders? the market is drifting a little bit. the focus is on apple. there seems to be a little bit of enthusiasm that it can come back to the up side. >> we were up a little while ago, now we're down. i think what happened, the senate majority leader harry reid came out with a couple of comments. he said any program, any deal that's out there must include a stimulus component -- really? a stimulus component? he said rates have to increase to 39.6% as part of any deal. the dow drifted lower on that because people were arguing you should have a 37% as a compromise on the tax rates. >> mr. geithner yesterday when speaking exclusively to steve leisman seemed to really avoid that 39% number. that encouraged a lot of people thinking that perhaps that is a flexible number. >> let's hope it is. but the senate majority leader says -- specifically said 39.6. i think that's specifically the reason we took a little bit of a dive a while ago. either side are positive or negative. but
boehner doesn't seem to have the power and grover does. >> the point, again, bob corker's pledge is not to me, it is to the voters of tennessee, that's the argument he's made again and again. if he wants to have a different conversation with the voters, that's his choice. >> why is corker the coolest man on earth? who does he play golf with? peyton manning. >> really? >> he's giving me all the big -- the minimum tax. i said, what are you up to this weekend? he said, i played golf with peyton manning. i said, are you kidding me? that seems to be more important to you than the fiscal cliff. >> 11-3? >> they still need home field advantage. >> they're competing for a first round play-off. what peyton has done is just amazing. steve liesman's exclusive with lacquer. one more look at futures this morning. we'll cover what 10% on squawk earlier today. and a lot more when "squawk on the street" comes right back.

interesting conversations over the weekend was bob corker saying, let's just go ahead, concede to the tax argument, which would flip the entire spotlight onto entitlements, which is what republicans have been trying to get the discussion to be about over the last couple of weeks. >> when you hear about entitlements, why aren't they talking directly, you know, medicare part b koshcosts x, or medicare a, should cost this. the last thing a republican wants to do is say, look, i'm cutting back medicare. so, i mean, if you switch it to entitlements, suddenly everyone has to say, social security goes from 66 to 68. is that what we do? do we means test medicare? it is so much easier for grover who will be on cnbc, forget the fiscal cliff, i will come after you with both barrels. if you vote tax increase. what's more -- do they want to rise above a tax increase? no. do they want to rise above fiscal cliff? no. what they want it do is not rise above the radar screen of raising taxes. and grover is more powerful than a recession. i asked him point-blank on "meet the press," college chum, look, it d
to explain about that. plus, we have bob from jones day who specializes in wall street deal making. jeff, it is ammo on wall street to do things behind closed doors. you don't want word to get out on the negotiations. it gets too messy. >> right. i wouldn't advocate for a lot of people to do what wall street does. one thing you can say is they've helped facilitate thousands of mna deals this year. they've figured something out with these transactions. the deals that are most successful have the better chance of success are the ones that you negotiate behind closed doors, not the ones that turn into hostile battles and spill out into public, which is what we're seeing noup. >> i understand that, but at the same time, what wh are we going to have a deal already? people are so frustrated by this. we've had 13 months to think about. now we're down to 26 days. bob, can you really make a deal on the fiscal cliff when the negotiation is out in public? do you think we'll get a deal done? that's what everybody wants to know. >> if everybody thinks we ought to get to a deal, we'll get to a deal. t
with our own bob pisani. >> you're looking to the market right now based on the next 12 months. at about $109. we should be trading at around 1740. if we were at the median p.e. of 16 -- >> 1740 on the s&p? >> 1740 would be a 16-forward multiple which is the median since as far back as capital iq has had forward estimatinged earnings. >> right now you're on 1426 on the standard & poor's. let me get your take on this. i recognize there are a lot of ways to look at things. but there's also a technical way to look at something. and that is if a stock is undervalued, maybe it's cheap for a reason. and maybe it will get cheaper. so why do you think that we're supposed to go back to the way history has shown us, when in fact sometimes the stock is cheap for a reason and only gets worse. >> that's what's causing a lot of investors to sit on their hands saying i'm not buying into is the. our forecast is for a 10% advance which is basically what history says we should be experiencing based on where we are now in this low inflationary environment combined with trailing gap earnings going back to t
secretive? how is it that you know how many times i've listened to a bob dylan song or any other song and yet we never get to know anything about you guys? >> we think holding our product plan secret is very important because people love surprises. >> this was one surprise apple could not have loved, the new samsung ad campaign. it's blistering, bold, damaging. it portrays apple products and people who love them as somehow passe and uncool, even desperate. it's a blunt instrument disguised as satire and it's a frontal attack on a ant that would have been unthinkable not too long ago. >> what did you just do? >> just sent my playlist. >> the galaxy s3. when do you think we'll be able to do that thing? >> hey. >> hey, mom, dad. >> thanks for holding our spot. >> you guys have fun. home by midnight, you two. >> the next big thing is already here. >> this ises the line for apps. >> the unmistakable message right there, apple products are for your parents. samsung makes the really cool stuff and they're much more casu about it. they came along and tried to paint those with white earbuds, a
have vision sensors. you are pushing forward about $4300 to shareholders. do you worry, bob, that there is a deal that has eventually struck before december 301 and that you are stuck for two years without dividends are what you then start paying more dividends? >> i would not see it as being stock. [talking over each other] >> they would rather have cash now. let us say that the tax rate does not change, nobody is going to complain about getting their dividend $1.112 years earlier than otherwise. maybe people won't forget a year and a half from now where is my dividend check. we are not sticking anyone. we are rewarding our shareholders for their loyalty and their share of the company. it turns out that the taxes, because of the bush tax cut, the federal taxes due on dividends are 15%. people think that is low. it turns out, that the company already paid tax on that money. whatever money we have, we pay tax on and that is already the shareholders money. we pay the corporate tax on that money which belongs to shareholders. but, okay, the tax used to be 36% got it used to be

here. people feel like it really keeps netflix in the game. >> we want to get a little more from bob, who is in the crowd, where berkshire has halted for news pending at this point. bob, there's been talk that berkshire quietly acoming a big stake in avida. that's now 13%. maybe it has other intentions in terms of ownership with that company. >> significant speculation just from what the news pending is. we don't know what it is. but i want to note, melissa, berkshire class a and class b shares are both halted news pending. the crowd is just sort of standing around here with orders to buy or sell, waiting to find out exactly what the news is going to be. you'll notice we're up again today. the sixth day in a row the dow industrials are up. optimism on the fiscal cliff being resolved. i'll tell you this, somebody's very wrong about 2013, because there's two camps that are quite at odds with each other right now. the first one i've been telling you about, it's been quat bearish on this. that the fiscal cliff will be a headwind for stocks. that this represents the start of a new america

(all) the gulf! it doesn't matter which of our great states folks visit. mississippi, alabama, louisiana or florida, they're gonna love it. shaul, your alabama hospitality is incredible. thanks, karen. love your mississippi outdoors. i vote for your florida beaches, dawn. bill, this louisiana seafood is delicious. we're having such a great yea
the dow jones industrial average is up. bob joins me, they are really hoping that they can get in done and get it done before christmas. this mark set dieing to get a deal. >> it is very something, do nothing is off the table. that's a substantial move. did anything happen? yeah, it did. you can see in the market, stocks that haven't not much recently are doing something. look at that, 3% moves on some big names. home builders are up nicely. they have been largely side ways since earnings came out. 5% on all the home builders. the treasury many etfs, slowly moving down, maybe deflating a little bit. we will talk about that in the last half hour. i get asked a lot about why is hewlitt packard down so much today? there is a somewhat negative article in the guardian, a london newspaper, questioning meg whitman's leadership, and that's probably it there. that's the only thing i have been able to find. >> ty, back to you. >> using power whatever this office holds to safeguard the nationes a children following the school massacre in newtown, connecticut. raising the prospect that he will goo
. before we go, you, bob have been known as the president's ear right for banking. >> i'm very close to him. liz: what is happening with the fiscal cliff, him and boehner. >> listen, they have had great meetings with ceo's. they have had three meetings with ceo's. the president wants a deal. boehner wants a deal. i think it has to be balanced with revenues including increased rates on taxes. i would say at like 75% that there's a deal. liz: well, there's a deal tomorrow when this auction is up. they're incredible. internship at chanel. come on you know a kid that wants that. incredible offers. good luck. good work you're doing, kerry. >> thank you for doing this. liz: kerry kennedy. oh the website, rfccenter.org. >> rfkcenter.org. liz: then you will click on it and see where the auction is. go falconning with rfk, jr., her brother. that's what you would like? david: i would like to go falconning. i would have to bid. liz: 5100. david: that is not bad. for a good cause. liz: always. david: apple and google have become french mys. -- frenemis. they are on a bid for kodak patents. we'll have t
away. we miss him. >> rest in peace. >>> let's check in with bob on that note. hey, bob. >> china. finally something from the leadership. we have been waiting for weeks, months, remember, everyone has been waiting for them to try to find where their desks are and find out where they can live and where they can stay and sit down and get used to the furniture and look around and say what are we going to do with the economy. we've been waiting no comment. we got comment from the party chief who made a speech in beijing and talked about what was going on. he used words like expanding domestic demand. used words like supporting urbanization. this is what everyone wanted to hear. those are buzz words. those are code words for stimulus. that's what the market is reacting to today. 2% move up in china in shanghai and even hong kong stocks. they moved together. this hasn't happened in a long, long time here. the bottom line is we're finally starting to hear from the leadership. they found their offices and things are starting to move and that is certainly very, very good news because now t
report, seasonaled justments will be a huge factor relative to sandy. >> bob and michelle are here. and my biggest question, if all the companies are pulling the give dends forward, the u.s. government thinks it will be taking in x amount based on what they would normally get for dividends plus whatever the hirer rate is going to be. it will drop substantially, correct? >> you'll get leads and lags in the revenues. a lead into this year, a lag next year. pretty obvious how this works. in terms of tax planning, let hope they know to take account of this. the argument will argue how great this is working and when there's a shortfall, how did that happen. so i hope we don't go that route. but this administration has been very big on these kinds of things, basically distorting what's going on and this current thing about the mandate really bothers me. so i woouldn't -- >> i think the challenge is being forward looking. there's big challenges not just because the challenge in terms of getting all the information, but also if win terms of trying make the budget numbers look good and you
thompson. she's in for bob this morning. >> the dow is down 54 points. now just down about 34. the market is expected to move in tandem with any headlines across from washington. right now, we don't have the deal, not really a problem for the markets. of course, that could change as we head toward the close and the uncertainty builds. quick check of the european boards today. most of them were closed. those who did trade, i should say, were only traded a half day. the session there was mixed. the concerns over there continue to be will the u.s. go over the fiscal cliff. that kept pressure on some of the indices there. we're keeping watch on the bank stocks right now. we've seen a dourn-around in those there. futures popped earlier half an hour before the open. they have opened broadly to the down side in today's session. you guys were talking about it earlier, another positive reading on the pmi out of china. that seems to be lending some support to the material stocks in today's session, as you take a look at the shanghai composite, which is closing at a six-month high, or closed the new
there was a time when bob toll of toll brothers and eagles fan came on "mad money" during what turned out to be the early part of the housing collapse. he said he saw the light at the end of the tunnel. but it was most like lit light of an on-coming train. those days are gladly behind us. i suspect the toll tells a story that it goes down the fiscal cliff monday. every day is fiscal cliff tuesday, wednesday, thursday. you get the picture. anyway, you should pull the trigger here to buy it here if the fiscal cliff does what i'm afraid of. brown foreman reports wednesday. this is an interesting one. why? because goldman downgraded it to sell. just last night. i've seen this movie. they were wrong last time. they'll be wrong again. i'm going to bet them a bottle of jack daniels that will be the case. in fact i'll bet them a case of jack daniels that will be the case. if they're close, as we told you we like asina. and i would be willing to be a buyer of that niche retailer ahead of this quarter because of some merger gains i think we'll hear about. but again only on news of setbacks to the f
bob corker was on our air earlier today and he laid out sort of what the political challenges here for republicans. take a listen. >> it sure seems to me that we're negotiating about something that makes it appear that all we are trying to do is protect the rich. er with not at all focused on entitlement changes which is the only thing that will save our country. >> so when the speaker now briefs his republican leadership colleagues about whatever was in that meeting yesterday, the trick for him is going to be to present it in a way that he gets there and continues to have support. there is mumbling and grumbling about a particular challenge to speaker boehner about republican colleagues early in the new year. that is something the speaker would like to avoid. he has it find a way to get a deal and keep his job at the same time. all of that is tricky can be tyler. >> thank you very much. let's go to the exclusive patented trade mark cliff-o-meter. are we closer to a deal? no deal. we call it right now, right in the middle. that is closer to a deal than it was late last week. basica

. bob costas admits he made a mistake addressing half time during sunday night football and that he didn't have time to flesh out his thought properly. last night on bill o'reilly "the factor" he was given moore time. >> i thought it was self-evident it was a domestic violence case, on retrospect i don't back up on anything i said. i think it might be more effective if i said look, if we're looking for perspective on this we're going to have a serious discussion within sports, ongoing, not five minutes of fully tears about it, but a discussion about domestic violence, about the culture of game itself. that would have been more effective and would have led to an understanding of what i was coming from. but i was talking about a gun culture, i never used the word second amendment. stuart: all right, interesting stuff and we're going to stay on the gun issue. a twitter war broke out over the second amendment. our next guest, carol roth went on piers morgan to hash out their differences face-to-face. >> what i don't expect is the interpretation of a lesson on the second amendment of the cons

hemisphere. i worked with some of my cuban- ileanaan friends, ke ros-lehtinen and bob menendez and we worked hard to put sanctions on castro to try to bring that regime down. it was not until the soviet mig that was shot down, they shot a couple of them down. one of them made it back. that created a huge for error -- furor. bill clinton was put in a difficult position. i was the author in the house and the jesse helms was the author in the senate and we worked together on the bill along with my cuban-american brands. >> that regime is still around. at the time, a number of our allies protested the bill. in the rearview mirror, how effective was it overall? do you feel good about that? >> it shows the repression is so strong in cuba, the ability of fidel castro to reach out to some of his "friends" around the world that he has been able to circumvent sanctions. i think we ought to do everything we can to bring freedom to the people of cuba. the helms-burton law was not as effective as i would have liked. >> another issue out you are associated with is autism. how did that get started? >> my g
